Britain's new ambassador to Israel David Quarrey officially entered his posting in Tel Aviv on Monday.

Quarrey succeeds Matthew Gould, who served as the UK's ambassador to Israel for the last five years.

Upon taking office, Quarrey said Monday that "it is a great privilege to be the new British Ambassador to Israel. Israel is a fantastic posting. I look forward to getting to know all of Israel’s communities.  I want to deepen the partnership between our two countries, in particular strengthening our ties in the fields of trade, investment, science, technology and cooperation against shared security threats, and work for progress toward peace.”

Quarrey formerly served as director for the Near East and North Africa in the British Foreign Office. He has previously worked as a private secretary to former British prime minister Tony Blair and has served at the UK Mission to the United Nations in New York, and in New Delhi and Harare.
